If you're a nursing home unit manager, what's your salary?

  1. Hey everyone, I'm a nursing home unit manager and am making about 19.50/hr. My administrator is trying to find out salaries or hourly rates of what some other unit managers are in the region. I am in the Bluegrass, Eastern Ky region. About 50 miles south of Lexington on I-75. Anyway, he is trying to get some comparisons to go by to see how much of a raise we might get...Yea! Any replies will be much appreciated.

    this is my first role as a unit manager, i've been a charge nurse before and i have been a nurse since 2005, i've been unit manager a month now and make 19.25 which to me is a pay cut b/c i'm used to the money i made in hospice...but i'm happier so i'm can trade off, also an lpn, are you an rn or lpn?
